Director: Daniel Maldonado
Film: CARNIVALE is a short texturally layered immersion into disorientation underlined by Summer coated exhilirations. A spatial transmutation where the senses are assaulted and yet we feel safe. Recorded on the unique Japanese Hiranezumi toy camera at Astoria Park’s annual street carnival, the film was conceived with the idea of drowning into a lo-fi psychedelic pool of the amusement park experience. Slipping into a hypnotic trance, we’re transported into a world that re-contextualizes the sensorial experience.
